    I hadn't even considered a shelter dog as an option, but I might take a visit and check it out

    Thank you for reminding me of this option perhaps they can help each other out :)

    Some great advice, we have a good size yard so a medium dog would suit well. I am hoping this will be a friend for life so your right letting him choose may be more personal than a gift of a puppy

    Thanks so much for taking the time to answer, a golden retriever is fast becoming my pick and I think your experience in this field is something to listen to

    Thank you

    I have to admit the hypoallergenic is a huge bonus, thanks for the suggestion I will check them out

    A golden retriever is sounding like a great option, he needs a true loyal friend

    Just a quick update, we ended up buying our son a Golden retriever mixed with a border collie, this dog has a great temperament which is just perfect for my son and with limitless energy has even helped him lose weight.

    thank you to all of you
